Default 99 Suburban Tire Size?

I recently purchased a 99 GMC Suburban from a buddy of mine. The thing is mint and really the only thing I need to do to it is put some new tires on it. I am going to go with BFG All-Terrain KO's because I have had them on my Jeep and Dodge in the past and I love them. My question is what is the biggest possible size I can put on them? Does someone make a leveling kit for 99 Sub., and if so will that get me a bigger size tire on it? If someone could give me a few suggestions for leveling kits if I can get bigger tires on it that would be great. Thanks!

Default RE: 99 Suburban Tire Size?

I have a 1999 Chevrolet Suburban that I put a set of Goodyear Wrangler Silent Armor tires on the OE rims in size LT285/75R16 load range E. There have been no problems at all on my stock vehicle.

It sounds like you may be thinking even bigger than that though.

mrudd25,

No matter how loaded it has been, or what I have been towing with it, I have never experienced any tire rub on my vehicle. The only drawback that I have encountered with this upgrade is trying to explain to my wife that the vehicle is actually travelling almost 10% faster than indicated by the speedometer. She is a full throttle and full brake kind of driver.

Hope that helps,

-JR
